My 3 year old granddaughter Millie has taken to putting things in the oddest places. With everybody waiting to go, the others sitting in the car outside, where on earth were her shoes? In the washing machine of course, where else would they be? The Christmas singers – novelty characters – are in place on the window ledge in the hall raucously singing ‘Jingle Bells’ whenever their little hands are pressed. Had to resort to switching them off sneakily and explaining to Millie that they needed to have a little rest from singing as they were tired. Several of the e-books are ready at the same time, quite a few going live next week in time for Christmas. It’s been a joy to catch up with them during the editing – perhaps I shouldn’t admit that I really enjoyed reading them once more but the truth is I did.
